Jenny Sturgeon is a singer-songwriter described as “a significant new talent” (Bright Young Folk) on the folk and acoustic scenes. Her music is rich with imagery and her songs are bound together by common threads of folklore, history and the connection people have with the wild. Having trained as a biologist her passion for nature and wild places emerges to create songs which are “musically superb, absolutely fascinating and utterly charming”  (Shire Folk).

Sturgeon’s songcraft is at the centre of her engaging and honest performance, with accompaniment on guitar, harmonium and dulcimer she has been described as “a wonderful singer who can change the atmosphere in the room with her affecting delivery” (Boo Hewerdine). In 2018 she was nominated as Composer Of The Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards.

Jenny performs solo as well as in a duo with renowned Old Blind Dogs fiddle player and guitarist Jonny Hardie (https://www.oldblinddogs.co.uk), and in a trio with Jonny Hardie and Capercaillie fiddle player Charlie McKerron (https://www.capercaillie.co.uk).

With three solo records, Source To Sea, From The Skein and The Wren and The Salt Air; Jenny is currently working on her next album – a collection of songs inspired by Nan Shepherd’s book ‘The Living Mountain’.

Musical collaborations include writing and performing in the critically acclaimed alt-folk band Salt House and in the bird and migration inspired project, Northern Flyway; a Creative Scotland and PRS Foundation funded audio-visual project that Jenny co-wrote with Inge Thomson – described as “like watching a David Attenborough documentary but with awesome music!”.

Jenny’s music has been played on BBC Radio Scotland, Radio 3, Radio 6 Music, Radio 2, and Radio Nan Gaidheal – including being featured as artist of the week and doing live sessions for Travelling Folk and BBC Radio 3.
